Talented visual arts students at a college in Solihull, West Midlands, have been recognized for their impressive work and received awards from the Arts Society Arden.
Three 13-year-old visual arts students from Solihull Sixth Form College have won prizes of £200 each from Arts Society Arden, who saw the full range of artwork on display at the recent visual arts exhibition at the middle School.
Successful students come from the BTEC Art and Design Practice course and the A-level Fine Art pathway.
One of the successful BTEC students was Govinder Singh. The Lyndon School alumnus impressed the judges with his ceramic and woodcarving work. He has just completed his course and plans to progress to Nottingham Trent University to study product and furniture design.
BTEC student Keeley Horton – also a Lyndon School alumnus – won an award for her work in concept art, animation and illustration. She plans to pursue game design next year at Coventry University.
The third winner is Rima Brown, who specializes in drawing and painting. A former pupil of Swanshurst School, Rima studied A-level maths and physics alongside her fine arts course and she plans to study architecture at Birmingham City University next year.
Zoe Maksymiw, Creative Arts Program Manager, commented: “I am truly delighted to see Govinder, Keeley and Rima being recognized for their highly professional and exciting work.
“The standard of work exhibited at the recent exhibition was exceptional and I know that choosing just three winners was very difficult. I would like to thank The Arts Society Arden for their continued support of our field of study.
“These awards will make a big difference to these students and help fund art materials and equipment for the start of their studies.”
